Ixchel Triangle, a company that makes beautiful, one-of-a-kind, handmade bags, was started by Tory, whose grandmother lived in Guatemala. As a result, her whole childhood was full of vibrant colors and beautiful textiles, so after her first trip there, she decided to start Ixchel Triangle.
Every time you make a purchase from this company, a portion of their proceeds go straight to the artisans who 100% hand make each item on the site, so you are directly supporting a family in Guatemala. Each artisan is paid above market wages for their talents.
Today I am reviewing one of their large bags, but on their site you’ll be able to shop bags of all sizes! The Qas Nim is large at 17″ x 18″, and features a 100% handwoven huipil and real leather trim, which comes at a price rage of $287. It gets my vote for all around best purse because one day I’ll use this as my everyday bag for running errands around town, and the next night I can use it to pack all of my son’s belongings for a night at grandmas house! So it’s multifunctional and gorgeous!
Ixchel Triangle also has Nich (small) bags that retail for $189 and measure 11″ x 13″ and the Nim is their medium size bag and which retails for $219 and measures 15″ x 15″.
Each one is completely unique and one-of-a-kind, so no-one will ever have your exact bag. This also means that there is a huge variety of colors and patterns so there is something for everyone. So if you like one that gets posted on the site, snag it before someone else does!
Besides the small, medium, and large bags, Ixchel Triangle also makes clutches, mini bags, diaper bags, and camera straps!
My Was Nim is lined with a bright red fabric, and I especially love this because it’s easy to see everything: digging into a bag that has a black interior seems like a dark hole! There is also an inside pocket that I use to store my keys and other small items, and a zippered pocket on the back.
You have two carrying options: use the small handles to carry it in your hands, or the long strap if you want to carry it over your shoulder or cross body. I also really love the cute tassel on the back! It’s all in the details, right?
Here’s one of my favorite features of the bag: this little hidden pocket in the front that has cute embroidery around it! A great place to store your cell phone!
Ixchel Triangle bags are beautiful and unique, and available in different sizes, colors, and patterns. But what I love most about this company is what they stand for, who they employ, and all the good they are doing to help families in need. That’s a company I want to get behind and support!
